Frederick police are asking for help locating a 17-year-old girl who was reported missing earlier this week, according to a department press release.
Makenna Stambaugh was last seen Monday at about 9 p.m. after getting a ride to the 1400 block of Heather Ridge Drive, according to the release. While police do not have reason to believe Stambaugh is in danger, and her case was not considered critical, Michele Bowman, a department spokeswoman, said the department wanted to make sure she was safe.
"It sounds like she went somewhere with a friend, got out of the car and didn’t come back, so we’re hopeful that she’s still in the area and will come forward," Bowman said.
Stambaugh was last seen wearing pajamas of an unknown color, according to the release.
Anyone with any information regarding Stambaugh's whereabouts is asked to call Detective Tyler Deatrich at 240-549-4541, or the Frederick Police Department at 301-600-2102.
